The chapter argues that despite critical consensus to the contrary there was a noteworthy mode of avant-garde writing and illustration for children in early twentieth-century Britain. It looks at a range of examples that range from the stylistically modernist to the visually surreal. Works discussed include those by Emid Bagnold, Jean de Bosschere, Lewitt-Him and Edith Saunders.
